Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"There was a time when we weren't particularly good, and all we wanted to do was get to the point where we could play meaningful September baseball. We've done that, really, since 2001. But the reality is, we had to get back into the playoffs, which we did last year. So we're one step along the way, and we get the opportunity to go beyond that. And now, who knows where this year will take us?" - Philadelphia Phillies Ownder Dave Montgomery on MLB.com (Barry M. Bloom, 10/05/08)
